1. Market Trend

Between August 24 and August 27, the BTC price fluctuated between $25,777.15 and $26,819.27, with a volatility of 4.04%. According to the 1-hour chart, the current trend of BTC has formed a trading range framework ($25,500-$26,500). Following a major drop, the market has calmed down, mostly showing a sideways trend. A false breakout probably occurs now, pushing the price back into the range. The 4-hour chart is currently pressured by moving averages, forming a typical bearish pattern. This situation is pessimistic. The daily chart’s drop needs technical adjustments. Price stalled for a week and averages converged down. Thus, reversal follows technical shifts to fill drop gaps. Prior analysis highlighted $25K as crucial support. Currently, defense at $25.5K can be a long entry, but $25K must be the stop-loss level. The market lacks one-sided stability (the price range will not always move in one direction), oscillating mainly. Conservative traders may wait for clarity before trading.

Between August 24 and August 27, the price of ETH/BTC fluctuated within a range of 0.06301-0.06385, showing a 1.33% fluctuation. From the 1-hour chart, ETH/BTC has been experiencing a ranging trend recently. However, when looking at the 4-hour and daily chart levels, the trends closely follow the moving averages (a stronger characteristic), with the price consistently staying above the averages (7-day and 25-day). Technically, compared to BTC, it has a more attractive buying potential. At this moment, it is still viable to apply the moving average strategy mentioned earlier and enter positions near the moving average levels (exit if the price falls below the average and doesn’t recover within 1 hour).

Based on overall analysis, most cryptocurrencies in the market are in a sideways-ranging trend. The outflow of funds and pressure from the shorts have led to an overall decrease in market trading volume and reduced trading activity. At this stage, the funds entering the market for trading are mostly speculative. These kinds of funds find it difficult to significantly increase the coin’s price (their focus is on quick in-and-out trades). As a result, it’s common to see frequent long upper/lower wicks in the candlestick patterns. This often leads to losses for investors. Therefore, it’s recommended to wait for clearer market conditions before entering trades. Aggressive investors should set strict profit-taking and stop-loss levels (referring to the specific points outlined in the BTC analysis) before entering positions.

The Bitcoin Ahr999 index of 0.43 is below the buy-the-dip level ($26,580). Therefore, it is advised to buy and hold popular coins in the spot market.

From the perspective of MVRV Z-Score, the value is 0.40. When the value is greater than 6, it enters the market tops, while a value below 2 indicates that it enters the market bottoms. Currently, the present value exceeds the buy-the-dip range (-0.36-0.06).
